- Ba Cissoko released his debut album at the age of 36, which gave the talented Guinean kora-player ample time to collaborate with other musicians and to develop his own style. Ba's innovative mix of traditional kora sounds with rock, reggae and blues influences and his lyrics - which alternate between the main Guinean languages of Malinké, Susu and Peul - have helped him carve out a distinctive reputation both at home and abroad. Now he releases his fourth album, recorded and mixed by Philippe Eidel (producer of Khaled and the Gypsy Kings).
Ba Cissoko plays with his long time sidemen, his young cousins (Sekou Kouyate playing the kora and Kourou Kouyate on the bass guitar) and with his latest recruits (the guitar player Abdoulaye Kouyaté and "d'Artagnan" on drums. Laurent Rigaud known as "Samba" (percussions) and The Ava Saty Marching band.
